Anti-1080-poisoning graffiti is obvious, chalked on the riser surfaces of paved steps in Dunedin's Octagon.

City Council parks manager Lisa Wheeler said the slogans were there yesterday morning and were washed off, but reappeared in the afternoon and were again washed off. The anti-1080 slogans first appeared during the occupation of the Octagon and the council did not know who was responsible, she said.
